Further, we review each fact check for accuracy before publishing. We fact-check the fact-checkers and let you know their bias. When appropriate, we explain the rating and/or offer our own rating if we disagree with the fact-checker. (D. Van Zandt)

|Claim by Ron DeSantis (R): “We have in Florida, more Black-owned businesses than any state in the nation.”
PolitiFact rating: Mostly True (Florida had 15,149 Black-owned businesses, defined as a Black owner having at least a 51% equity share. California ranked second, with 13,729, and New York placed third, with 12,636. However, Florida isn’t first for Black-owned businesses as a percentage of all businesses in the state.)

|Claim by the People’s Voice: Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said, “It’s time to ban cash to fight climate change.”
AP News rating: False (There is no record of Clinton making that remark and the website making the attribution doesn’t provide any evidence for its claim. The Clinton Foundation confirmed she did not make that statement.)
No, Hillary Clinton didn’t call for banning cash to fight climate change

While the group held its first in-person summit in 2021, there is no evidence that Biden was responsible for the group’s formation.)
